LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin police arrested a woman who they say was caught walking around like a zombie on Culverhouse Avenue Tuesday evening.

According to the police report, dispatch received a report at 5:17 p.m. of a woman who looked like a zombie walking around in the middle of Culverhouse Avenue.

An officer arrived to find Laricia Young, 29, frozen in the middle of Treadwell Avenue, frozen in place as if she was unable to move. The report states she still had a cigarette in her hand that had been dipped in "wet," otherwise known as PCP.

The officer asked Young basic questions, but the officer was unable to understand her answers due to her slurred speech.

The officer said he then noticed her eyes begin to roll back in her head.

Young was checked out by a medical unit before police took her to jail on a charge of public intoxication.

Young has posted a $500 bail.
